Saint Mary´s church

Saint Mary's church in Ondarroa is a late Gothic building. Construction on it probably began in 1480. Above its arches there is a curious system of terraces. The church has three naves at the same level, and a gabled roof.

On the outside, the church is one of the most decorated temples in Bizkaia. The walls are decorated with a border of floral and animal themes. The steeple above it has geometric patterns. The windows and rose windows are Gothic. Other interesting elements are the gargoyles in the shape of animals, the sculptures on the pinnacles, and the kortxeleko-mamuak, a set of 12 figures in a Lower Medieval court that line the balcony.
